LETTER FROM CEO
Since the very start in 1989, this company has endured both struggles and triumphs, all of which have made Active USA what it is today. As I reflect on this 30 years long journey, I feel a deep sense of amazement and appreciation towards all who have contributed and dedicated themselves to this company. Each trial and tribulation has made us who we are today and shows us all that we are capable of. One particular challenge from the past stands out as a symbol of our team’s strength and dedication. During the 1992 LA Riots, I watched everything that we had worked towards, our headquarters and warehouse, burn to the ground. Despite the deep sense of loss and devastation we all felt, we were able to get back up and pick up the pieces. This experience has left a profound mark on our lives because it is a testimony to the power of community and hard work. Without the support and genuine compassion of our employees, vendors, and customers, we would not be here today, and for that, I would like to say thank you. Active USA’s success truly comes down to every single member of our team, all of our supportive partners, and each of our loyal customers. Thank you always for being Active.
